* Kiyemba v. Obama (D.C. Cir. May 28, 2010) (denying further habeas relief to the five remaining Uighurs at GTMO)

A per curiam DC Circuit panel opinion (Henderson & Randolph), with a concurrence by Rogers, has granted the government’s motion to reinstate the Circuit’s earlier judgment denying further habeas relief to the Uighur detainees who remain at GTMO. Five of the original seventeen Uighur petitioners remain at GTMO today, though at least one other country (aside from China) has offered to take them in. The per curiam and concurring opinions are posted here.
